Kitten dream meaning

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Hello, my name is Flo, a psychic from the UK and my personal journey into dreams started over 20 years ago. Since then I have discovered many wonderful and interesting facts about dreams of kittens from both spiritual and psychological perspectives. I am so excited to share all these with you! And, yes, I love nothing more than cuddling up to these tiny bits of fluff. 

The dream might be strange and include various twists or encounters. A kitten is a symbol means being innocent and pure. There is a spiritual notion that the kitten can also indicate the need for independence in life. Saving poor little kitty in your dream indicates that you will need power and control in a matter close to you. Perhaps the kitten was on a busy street, or just about to be squashed by a car. Such a dream can suggest that you are going to save something close to your heart in waking life. If you have just got a kitten in real life then this dream is sometimes common, especially the dream of losing the kitten. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Dreaming Of Kittens 

Now, let’s understand the dream of kittens in more detail from a spiritual viewpoint. It is a link to your feminine side and this is why this dream is normally associated with females. Cats or kittens symbolize women in your life. There is also a feeling of being self-sufficient, which may also be perceived as a kitten. To observe a kitten running in your dream is connected to independence, womanly instincts, originality, and supremacy. Unfortunately, this dream is also connected to difficult times and bad luck in ancient spiritual books. Did you also know that a kitten featured in your dream can also be connected to the goddesses Bast - the Egyptian cat goddess, representing the two sides of your nature and personality?

Dreaming of kittens can signify that someone may be untrustworthy or disloyal to you. Little kitty may not be all roses and light! To dream of an aggressive kitten signifies issues with the female side of your personality, but it can also mean that you will soon be dealing with a catty person in your life. So, what does it mean to dream of a fluffy kitten? Well, this shows your attitude towards a comfortable life. It is time to take care of yourself. 

If you are scratched or bitten by a kitten, this can imply that you are going to encounter a difficult situation with a female. To find yourself being chased or chasing the kitten spiritually can mean that obstacles are currently in your way. To run after a kitten suggests that you are going to find difficulties with a project in the future.

  • You Dream Of A Kitten = Happiness
  • You buy a kitten = Friendship in life.
  • You pet a kitten = This can suggest impulsive actions and rushing into a decision.
  • Lots of kittens =  Possible journey in life.
  • An aggressive kitten = New possibilities in life.
  • A fluffy kitten = This dream can indicate a friendly person.
  • You are scratched or bitten by a kitten = This is connected to how you feel about yourself.

  • You run after a kitten = The kitten is focused on how you interact, are you running away from something?

Interestingly, we also need to look at where the kitten is in the dream. Is the kitten curled up in front of the TV? The way the kitten is portrayed is important, for the kitten to either run away or cannot be found in your dream then this indicates that you need to feel freer in life, perhaps you have been feeling trapped? If we look at the famous theorists of dreams, Carl Jung, he took a more object orientated approach to dream interpretation. This was, I think because his dreams were about houses and architectural symbols as opposed to Sigmund Freud who had more of an interest in dreams about the body. Both these psychologists collected thousands of dreams. Their approach to the study of dreams can be confusing. There is so much academic writing on the topic and both these psychologists have written famous books. Alas, they approached a dream like how a mathematician would approach an equation, missing out the "spiritual" meaning of the dream. 

The interesting thing about these psychologists is that there is a spiritual side of dream meaning, in both Freud and Jung books this meaning was never really discussed or believed. So what does dream psychology say about the dream of a kitten? Psychologists believe a connection between dreams and symbols in waking life. The Freudian theory states that many of our dreams are simply an enormous part of our subconscious mind, that we take in images every day that results in our dreams. So how is this associated with your dream? The dream of kittens from a psychological perspective is a communication which can be due to seeing a cat or kitten in the waking world. Kitten dreams are normally linked to how we feel about our lives and the control that we have. If you see a kitten tangled in wool or kitty can't get down a tree then maybe you are subconsciously unable to get something off the ground. 

To dream of a miniature kitten indicates that is time to stop and listen to your own voice.

To listen to a kitten mewing means that you have false friends around you. To hear the kitten screaming in your dream suggests that somebody in the waking world has said something hurtful about you. Sometimes people say things in life which they simply regret or do not mean. It is up to you to forgive the person.

In general, to dream of a kitten indicates that you are likely to be misled by others. It is very important that you want to avoid being influenced by other people at this time. If you dream of a black and white kitten it suggests that you may have some source of sadness or regret in the near future. If you are involved in business, this dream indicates that you need to put all efforts into making your particular business a success.

Now, some dream books have gone as far as saying that dreaming of a kitten can suggest you are immature and childlike. These are characteristics that you have, it indicates that you are feeling somewhat vulnerable right now. To see a long-haired kitten denotes a blissful time in life.

Every single detail of the dream needs to be reviewed. Generally, the dream of kittens can mean that you are feeling childlike in your approach to problems.
